Even with a vast amount of nursing education and years of experience as a Nurse Practitioner, Mara Langevin cannot understate the importance of proper training to be an AOA/Medical Director in a medical aesthetics practice.
It was an offer I couldn’t refuse. Kelly Ross, a Nurse Practitioner who recently took our Medical Director/AOA course, asked me to help share information she learned with the nurses she oversees. A great idea. And gratifying to all.
What do nurse practitioners and physicians know about the responsibilities of a Medical Director (or Authorizer with Ordering Authority) in medical aesthetics? Probably not much. Even current Directors and Authorizers are unsure of the role. That’s where we come in.
